@metrikk @shalowaters @ScottAn72778460 @OCpatriot_ @sav_says_ Here's #HuffPo on research on

Why People Shut Down When Their Political Beliefs Are Challenged

Certain brain areas go into overdrive, treating opposing evidence like an existential threat

Which they try to use to smear conservatives

Especially #Trump😱…
@metrikk @shalowaters @ScottAn72778460 @OCpatriot_ @sav_says_ But the paper #HuffPo relies on to smear conservatives in their article

Especially #Trump & his supporters

Neural correlates of maintaining one’s political beliefs in the face of counterevidence

Is actually a study on "#LIBERALS"!!!😱🤦‍♂️😂🤣🤣…
@metrikk @shalowaters @ScottAn72778460 @OCpatriot_ @sav_says_ That's par for the course for "liberal" "science"

Here's an article on the "scientific" output

Of our famously (supposedly more intelligent & educated) "liberal" academics

Conservative political beliefs NOT linked to psychotic traits, AS study CLAIMED🤦‍♂️…

🌈Did you know that @TheAbbeyWeHo, the iconic gay bar in West Hollywood, started as a humble coffeehouse in 1991?

Arguments for "woke" Christianity. A thread.

I've been debating what the Christian right calls "woke" for years. It's always the same points. So instead of addressing them over and over again. I thought I'd create a thread to book mark. Warning-this will be long. 1/
My background. I'm a preacher's kid, been a Christian my entire life (I'm 56). I've also voted Republican, Democratic, Independent. I'm not particularly partisan and I think the marriage of Christianity and politics is incredibly dangerous as proved throughout history. 2/
The denomination I grew up was fairly liberal. However as an adult, I attended evangelical mega churches that became increasingly fundamentalist over the years. I was like a frog in boiling water-not recognizing the changes in doctrine until the Trump era. 3/

@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll Wow

1924 not quite century ago😲

But now you're scraping barrel for straws to clutch by going back to 1919😱🤦‍♂️

Part of what #ScottAdams says is Blacks can't move forward if always focussed on past

And can AND WILL only move forward if #EducateYourself…
@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll Talking of #EducateYourself

#RedSummer of 1919 caused 38 deaths in Chicago & 15 in Washington DC😲

That's a bad weekend in the Hood!😱🤦‍♂️

And partly fueled by elites using Blacks as strikebreakers

Partly by left-wing activists using Blacks as weapon to divide

No change there!
@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll But hey

If your folks & you find the country that adopted you so horrible

You've got over 200 other countries to choose from

If the US is so bad why not emigrate again to somewhere better

Or are you looking for as good as can be in the circumstances for the time to destroy!😱

1/ I've argued ad nauseum for a more practical approach to public safety, business and public finance in #Chicago and #Illinois. But my sense is I'm mostly reaching people predisposed to my moderare to center-right views. So a brief thread for my #progressive friends on the #left
2/ I want to start out by saying that some of the smartest and nicest people I know identify as progressive. They are good people. They want good things. Yet I think many have a naive worldview and as a consequence don't appreciate the practicalities of achieving their aims.
3/ Here's the main issue insofar as Chicago and Illinois are concerned: stuff costs money. States and cities don't have their own central banks that can just print money and finance deficits. There's a real cost to progressive policy initiatives that have to be borne by someone.

This mornings rant is about #paidfamilyleave in Colorado & how #voters overwhelmingly passed FAMLI

[& employers can now register for CO’s new program finally; employees max 12 weeks of paid leave a yr + 4 additional wks for #pregnancy or #childbirth complications]

Let’s get 1st thing straight - this 🧵 is no insight into the near 15 yrs #advocates fought for #paidfamilyleave at the CO state Capitol before #voters passed it on the #ballot

I, like many folks - came into the advocacy for #FAMLI yrs after lots of fight. Grateful to have it
Many of us worked on the #ballotmeasure in 2020 & #voters approved the program by 57% of the vote ✨ the amount of barriers set in place to #advocate for #paidfamilyleave & #pass it & then #implement it - have been eye opening 👁 to say the least. #copilitics

This mornings rant is dedicated to all the folks doing #community designed policy. I see MANY ppl talk about this in #copolitics & very FEW tangibly do it successfully.

Join me in yesterdays presentation to @DePaulU students & some good local examples - a 🧵
Whether it’s small p or big P #policy how we design initiatives, how we write bills, how we engage testifiers, how we build coalitions & organize - can perpetuate inequities we’re trying to disrupt. #copilitics

white supremacy cultural characteristics love policy & advocacy
We’ve got incredible #leaders that stray away from white supremacy cultural characteristics in advocacy & lead with #integrity

Like the @ColoradoSPC @elephant_circle @S2SSisters @9to5Colorado @DenverTaskForce#community designed #leadership & #policy [great CO give list]

Are there any changes in #brain #structure during the first year following #trauma #exposure? Is there a difference between individuals who develop #chronic #PTSD and those who #recover? A quick thread about our work published today in @molpsychiatry📜🧠🧵…
Reduced #hippocampus and #amygdala volumes have been repeatedly documented in #PTSD patients. But do they reflect a #pretrauma vulnerability trait or #postexposure stress-induced atrophy?
To answer this question, we examined the association between #longitudinal #volumetric #changes of the hippocampus and the amygdala, as well as their #key #subregions, and #PTSD #symptom #trajectories during the first #14months following #trauma exposure. Image

What I find as interesting about this chart as its contents is the label at the top: "#LIBERAL WOMEN"

Labour may in part* be more 'liberal' than the current Conservative party, but it is not a Liberal party...

*It still has its more authoritarian, "law'n'order!" tendencies. Image
...indeed, the chart itself 👇 suggests that "the women of Wakefield" support the Liberal Democrats LESS than the men.

This rather American(?) conflation of "left" and "liberal" in both language and assumption is a form of #CategoryError - in large part due to the insistence... Image
...on the all-too #binary 'left/right' framing that fails to encompass many nuances within politics.

That UK-level choices prefer only two 'parties of Government' does not entirely reflect either sentiment or ground reality, as the local government layer in England indicates... Image

A sincere, no BS, friendly message (and strategy) to all #StarmerOut folks.

It's a long 🧵but please read.

#KeirStarmer #Starmer #Labour #labourdoorstep #LabourParty #ProgressiveAlliance #SocialistSunday #socialism #Progressives #progressive #FBPE #FBPA
Firstly, there's no disagreement between us. Starmer has proven one of the most ingenuine politicians in our history. He has repeatedly rowed back on his leadership pledges & sentiments and proven untrustworthy in his words and actions as leader.
He has been a babe in the woods. Policy illiterate and not particularly interested in ideas. Electorally inept, taking the hand of his elders when he's lost and then caught in the headlights when the strategy handed to him doesn't work.

1/ This is a thread about the deteriorating state of affairs in #Illinois and, specifically, #Chicago. But it’s probably applicable to other cities and states that in recent years have experienced rising #crime and slowing #economic growth.
2/ I'm writing this because there comes a time when everyone reaches some personal boiling point on some issue and I've hit it. I'm not going to stand back, silently while my family's safety and economic outlook is increasingly at risk.
3/ My thoughts aren’t 100% formulated yet, but I want to start building out my thinking on some urgent issues and hopefully create an intelligent discussion space. As time goes on, I will likely have more to say and bring more data and actionable ideas to the table.

This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

There is a very good 🧵 at…, unrolled at…, concerning #TransIdeology. You should read it. But something needs to be added.

The claim that when a man feels "I am a woman" he literally IS a woman is flat out #insanity.
The fact that many people believe this shows their is something severely wrong with them, psychologically.

And the fact that this insane claim has conquered the #Progressive movement shows there is something wrong with Progressivism, philosophically.
#Progressives should have reacted to these claims with laughter, believing them to be an elaborate joke. When they realized the ideology was serious, they should have felt stunned surprised that anyone could believe the equivalent of people thinking they were Napoleon.
